Frank Ocean Cancels Festival Appearances And Tour Dates With Coldplay

    Sorry to break it to you, European Frank Ocean fans, but the R&B up-and-comer has just announced the cancellation of a number of tour dates including his performance at this weekend’s Way Out Festival in Sweden and his opening slot on Coldplay’s European leg of their world tour. 

    The singer broke the news with an announcement posted to the Swedish festival’s Facebook page that read,“Let me start by saying I feel like an asshole right now but a tough decision had to be made in regard to my schedule over the next months and the casualties of that decision include my appearances at upcoming festivals in Europe and my opening slot of the European leg of the Coldplay world tour. Sorry as fuck, I’ll be back if you’ll have me.” The news comes just days after Ocean had to stop a performance early at Norway’s Oya Festival after losing his voice.
